I dunno how I feel about this new Hitchhiker's book called And Another Thing... yet.
How some people feel about the new Dune books and others feel about the new James Bond books is basically how I feel about this.
And this is central to one of the Great Fanboy Conundrums... does The Great Neck's Prequel Trilogy reduce the greatness of Empire Strikes Back? Is the awesomeness of James Earl Jones and Max Von Sydow in Conan The Barbarian reduced by Conan The Destroyer's sheer mentally-challengedness (featuring sex legend, Wilt Chamberlain, and anti-sex legend Grace Jones!) What about the half-human Doctor from the Paul McGann movie? (That was something I was actually cool with because someone had to explain why he spent all that frakking time on Earth!)
The originals still exist and they can still be enjoyed, but something feels diminished by a new addition that sucks. And for guys like me, I can't just will it out of existence. It's there, taunting me with suckiness and financial desperation. And if it's from the same creator (I'm looking at Godfather 3 for this one) then it stings even more, because the feet of clay are even more obvious.
I'll still read the book and try to follow its advice about the whole thing. I'll reserve my judgment until it's out, but until then, I've got a bad feeling about this.
